Tom Brady Revives Colts Runner-Up Banner After Subtle Diss From Tony Dungy

Tom Brady is a lot of things including proud, successful, and the most accomplished quarterback in NFL history. Yet, we learned once again on Tuesday that he is pretty adept at social media.

Brady shot back on Twitter at former Indianapolis Colts and current NBC football analyst Tony Dungy, who said the future first ballot Hall of Famer was the sixth most difficult quarterback to defend.

Shannon Sharpe, who has been highly critical of Brady’s play over the past few years, asked Dungy about his rankings during the former’s Club ShayShay program.

“Who I put ahead of Tom Brady: Aaron Rodgers, John Elway, Steve Young, guys who could move. Not to say Tom wasn’t great, but that extra dimension meant something to me,” said Dungy.

Interestingly enough, Dungy in the same breath said that his top guy was Peyton Manning, which is a logical choice but no much when scrambling is allegedly a significant criteria.

Obviously, when someone has six Super Bowl rings, they are going to clap back as the kids say. Brady tweeted a picture of the infamous 2014 Colts Runner-Up Banner that hangs in Lucas Oil Stadium – home of the Indianapolis Colts.

While Dungy was long gone from Indianapolis by the 2014 season, Brady’s tweet speaks to a problem in Indianapolis. The Colts hang up runner-up banners for losing the AFC Championship Game. In my opinion, it’s remarkably silly.

Brady is responsible for hanging two of those AFC runner-up banners including the ’03 and ’14 AFC Championship games as a member of the New England Patriots. Brady and the Patriots were 2-1 against the Colts while Dungy was the latter’s head coach.

Keep doing your thing on social media, TB12.
